Important Lynx Loppet Updates!!!!!!!1!!!

Here’s the plan everyone! Please read all of this, this is in place of our pre-race meeting today.




Assuming school is still on, you will all meet Charlie and Karina in the ski room after 2nd hour and grab classic gear and head out to the races. Make sure you look at the start list in the ski room or posted up at Kincaid for your bib number and start time. Also take a look at the course map and preview the course if you can. I have attached course maps and start list to this post.


Coaches and volunteers will be waxing your skis down in the stadium by the big orange tent. Please bring down your skis 2 to 2.5 hours before your start time to get kick wax.  Our goal is for you to have ski ready to go try 45 minutes before your start, but if we get backed up, don’t stress, we’ll get it done! There won’t be a lot of places for you to test kick wax, but we’ll do your best.


If you are able to wax at home I would suggest a warm wax with a hardener if you have it. Swix CH8 with a cold powder, CH7 if you don’t have cold powder, or a Toko Red would work too. Also if you are able to clean skis at home, that would help us out. If you can’t do one or both of those things, don’t worry about it.


Remember to get a good warm up in. That may mean bringing some running shoes and going for a jog on the multiuse trail to get your body moving.


Friday night spaghetti feed will be at Ryann’s house: 2727 Illiamna Dr at 6pm

Hosts will provide pasta and sauce. Please bring a dish to share based on your last name:
Desserts: A-G
Drinks: H-K
Salads: L-O
Breads: P-Z

Theme TBA

If there is no school on Friday we will not race on Friday. Details for Saturday would be to be announced later.  



Saturday’s race is a pursuit start for many of the team. The races will be split into Girls and Boys A and Girls and Boys B. Everyone from B-F teams will be combined into one sheet and the top 100 of those will race in the B races. A team will have their own race and aren’t counted in that 100. The pursuit start means that your start time is your time behind the winner from Friday’s race. For example if you finish 1 minute 52 seconds behind the winner on Friday, first place from Friday will start at time 0:00 and you will start at time 1:52. It all goes fast so just have your head up as people are starting.


For those in the top 100 or who didn’t race Friday, there will be a community race at around 1:45. It is super fun, and with enough encouragement you might get some coaches to race too.


Race starts for Saturday will be

11:00 B Girls

11:45 B Boys

12:30 A Girls

1:15 A Boys

1:45 Community Race

Awards after


Buses for Saturday:

9:00 Departure B Boys and Girls

10:00 Departure A Girls and Boys and Community Racers


Please arrive 15-20 minutes early so we can depart on time.
